Beautiful Christmas Music

My daddy was a classical cellist.  I grew up hearing him play beautiful music. At Christmas time especially, music resounded  through our house as my father rehearsed for church worship services and various other musical performances. Some of my favorite pieces that he played during Christmas included Handel’s Messiah and Schubert’s Ave Maria. Sometimes we got to tag along with him to his concerts. It was fun getting all dressed up on these occasions. My dad wore his tuxedo or “monkey suit” as he would call it.  I was proud to watch him up on stage and to say that I was the daughter of such a gifted artist.
